New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201311-20 (Okular: Arbitrary code execution)
Okular contains a heap-based buffer overflow in the RLE decompression functionality in the TranscribePalmImageToJPEG function in generators/plucker/inplug/image.cpp.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PBD file using Okular, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Okular users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=kde-base/okular-4.4.5-r2'
